George’s at the Cove: Ocean Terrace has been one of my favorite spots to take people from out of town looking to splurge on a nicer meal with a killer view. I’m sad to report it has been quite a while since I last visited. I think my absence coincides with the dismay I felt when I found out they added surcharges for restaurant week items years ago. It was one of the first ones, if not the first one I remember ever doing that. But much like my Wendy’s ban of 10+ years, it was time to let it go.…Read more
So Jorgina and I stumbled onto Tigris Mediterranean Grille the other week after a quick trip to her dentist in Kearny Mesa. It’s just West of the 15 Fwy off of Clairemont Mesa Dr. and Overland Ave. The parking lot in the shopping center was a bit dense, but luckily we found one before the lunch rush.
Inside we were happy to find a quick service Mediterranean grill where you can watch the action of them preparing your food.
At the end of the line, you will find a couple cashiers to take your order and their full menu just overhead.…Read more
Happy New Year! I haven’t made any New Year’s resolutions this year that I would probably eventually give up on, so instead I’ll make a wish. I wish to eat just as many or more amazing things this year as I did last. I also want to find things I haven’t gotten a chance to discover or try yet. Here’s to a great 2016 all!
There was a time Michael and I went to The Original Sab-E-Lee at the original location across the street almost every week. Okay, maybe it seemed like every week but we went a lot.…Read more
Whhhhhheeeeeewwwwww! That is the sound of me dusting off this many month old post. It has been sitting in drafts for far too long. I don’t recall why we were up in the area because I rarely venture outside my zone, but Michael and I made it out to Cafasso Meatball Company many moons ago. It doesn’t normally look like that…I think. By now the construction should be done.
We opted for a family meal that came with a salad, garlic bread, meatballs, and ravioli. The salad was your standard green salad.…Read more
Ever since I visited Yes! Pingo over a year ago and stumbled upon Blush Desserts next door I wondered how they were doing. That mall is a revolving door of restaurants with a less than friendly parking lot to boot. Now a year later Yes! Pingo isn’t there any longer and I believe Blush Desserts is under new ownership (just kidding, they clarified that it is in fact the same original owners!).
When we first popped in they were just starting up and actually didn’t really have much of anything to offer.…Read more
A little reminder, we are running a McDonald’s giveaway so don’t forget to enter! Onto our review! Need a dash of nostalgia? The Safehouse just might be that place if you are a video game nerd like me. Located in North Park, their focus is on ramen, local beer, and of course the overall fun atmosphere.
You read that right. NINTENDO 64!
I spy a Nintendo 64 in the corner. Depending on how you look at it, we were or weren’t in luck because the Chargers game was on. Michael was trying to avoid watching/hearing what was going on because he was recording it at home.…Read more
A quick shout out to my neighbors, Russ and Berm, who turned me on to Ocean Pacific Grille right when they opened up 4 months ago. They’ve been raving about them ever since. So, I’ve been wanting to try them for some time now, but always had some sort of scheduling conflict.
Luckily for us, Kat from Crave Marketing, invited us to check them out recently. So of course we jumped at the opportunity when it arrived and said, YES!
Ocean Pacific Grille was opened by Managing Partner, Brian Norris, and Chef Partner, Charles Andres. …Read more
Happy Halloween everyone! This post is dedicated to all the people who can’t get enough sweets. Although I haven’t dressed up for Halloween in a while, it is still fun to enjoy the spirit and to people watch. We were given a gift card to explore Whole Foods to try some of their candies. They prohibit the use of artificial colorings, sweeteners and preservatives found in most Halloween candies. So if you are looking for an alternative to the traditional big name brands, here are a few options.
Walking around trying to find the candy I found some fun Halloween cakes and fall whoopie pies.…Read more
